It started with the first ‘talking telegraph’ trial in 1877 which led to the formation of the New Zealand Post and Telegraph Department in 1881. What followed was 130 years of communications evolution that saw telephones in nearly every home, the privatisation of the network and birth of Telecom in 1987, and the arrival of the internet and mobile phone technology.
Now optical fibre ushers in a new era. Chorus was formed in March 2008 as a Telecom business unit operating at arm’s length from the rest of the organisation, to give all service providers access to the local fixed line network.
In December 2011, Chorus reached a major milestone, formally becoming a separate entity and listing on the New Zealand stock exchange.
Today, as New Zealand’s largest telecommunications infrastructure company, Chorus continues its long heritage of building and looking after the country’s fixed line telecommunications network for present and future generations.
